Our 3-year-old son will only sleep if we give him melatonin and we have to give it in a certain way: he gets 1mg half an hour to an hour before bed, then another 1mg at bed. We had to use trial and error to find the right dose and the right times for him. It’s possible a simple change to your son’s melatonin dosage or the time he takes it might help, either increasing it as he grows or altering the time he takes it. If we forget to give our son that second dose within half an hour to an hour of the first one, then it’s like we never gave it to him at all.
